wily... or weird... or wonderfully the market's behaving... which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long period

this freakish weather and all the sciences is so overwhelming about claimant count yet you don't see on the nightly news. is there a story that you wanted to grab by the scruff of the neck during her tenure at abc and say, we've got to cover this more? >> there were several. we would have discussions about. one of them was the environment and how we covered the environment. and every time we try to do a primetime special environment we wouldn't get a rating. that led, it's one of the chapters i write about, what i do not come across well. we had leonardo dicaprio india president clinton. we got killed for it. we did a primetime environmental special, and he was chairman of earth day that you and i thought he would just make an appearance. i got killed for. that was an attempt to try to cover the environment in a serious way and drive an audience. i was concerned, frankly, about our terrorism coverage. we did more terrorism coverage than others did before 9/11. jon miller went in and interviewed bin laden, trekked into the mountains in afghanistan and interviewed him. we get a primeti
york presbyterian nbc's chief science and health correspondent robert bazell. what do we know this morning, bob? >> reporter: well, chris, since we've been talking about this last night we don't have a lot of information. we just have this one statement from secretary clinton's office and the hospital is not saying anything. a lot of doctors are telling me the information in that statement is a bit contradictory. here's why. they say that she has a blood clot that stemmed from a concussion she got several weeks ago. but the problem is, blood clots that stem from concussions don't usually get treated with blood thinning drugs which is what they say they're doing here. either she has a concussion someplace else that may not -- excuse me -- a blood clot someplace else that may not be related to the concussion or there is more to her health that we don't know about. they say they're watching her closely for a couple days. we will have to continue to watch ourselves to see what the situation is but right now all we know is that she is in this hospital. she's under observation. we d
science and health correspondent robert bazell is here with more on her condition. and when they put a statement out yesterday, you know, they said she was in good spirits, that she was communicating well with her doctors, no sign of a stroke. it all seemed to be very positive, but what are the concerns right now? >> well, the concerns are that the clot doesn't get completely dissolved. there is no indication that that's not happening. what she had was a consequence of a concussion that she got from a fall a few weeks ago. you can see on the graphic there where the spot of the blockage is. this is a vein that drains blood from the brain into the rest of the body. and if the clot is not taken care of, the danger is that that red spot can grow and go back into the brain and cause some kind of stroke or ocollusion of the circulation to the brain. that did not happen. they say they've done extensive neurological tests on her and these tests all indicate that she's perfectly in good shape. she can speak well, she can move well, all these things that are so critical and that somebody in th
that would be a much greater threat is that correct? >> of course. >> tell me a little bit about the science there. it is located close to the area but not within it. >> so the vein, she has a vein that is draining the brain i.e. the blood that comes to the brain through the arteries comes out and is draining the brain. her clot was not very large apparently and probably came on as a result of her injury from the concussion. i imagine it was not present when they did the first mri when they diagnosed her concussion. had she had a clot of a blood vessel going to the brain, then there would have been a plug. and sort of like crimping a garden hose. you essentially stop flow to the brain. that causes instant injury to the brain. that is not the case that has happened to secretary clinton. >> and doctors say she did not suffer a stroke or neurological damage from the clot that formed after she fainted and fell at her home last month and she suffered a concussion. is that common? >> so it's, the concussion and the relationship to this clot in a vein coming from the brain is not common. it's actua
the clot which was found in her head. with us to discuss the case, nbc news chief science and health correspondent bob bazell. good to see you, bob. when we talked last night, what you said was we were missing a critical piece of information, which is where is the clot, and it's in the vein situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. what can you tell us? >> this is a vein that drains blood from the brain into the central circulation system. the danger with it, because it's so close to the brain, is that if the clot were to grow, it could go inside the brain and become a stroke. that didn't happen according to the doctors. it's appropriate to treat this kind of clot with anti-coagulant therapy. one of the things everybody was talking about before was usually when somebody has a concussion, they get a blood clot called a subdural hematoma and that cannot be treated with that therapy because it presents certain dangers. because this is in a vein outside the brain it can be treated. it's a fairly rare complication with concussions, but it is a possibility

"the new york post" quoting figures from app data saying the photo sharing service had 16.4 million users when it announced the change. a number that's now fallen to 12.4 million. users had interpreted this change to the privacy issue to mean that instagram could actually sell their photos for use in advertising. but instagram says it was all a big misunderstanding. they came out with a new terms of service. you had to press i agree -- i don't even know, people said oh, my goodness, they actually own our photos, they're going to do things with our photos that we don't even know about, and that has not come. they've since changed the policy. but i do know a number of people, and clearly the numbers have been demonstrating, jumped off the service. and instagram now owned by facebook. so other questions about mark zuckerberg and p

the country. >> that is a really great question and sort of as much political science as anything else. anything could big factor. i don't want to sound to nerdly, but the rise of computer-based redistrict teen, strangely enough, that the members of congress and state legislatures have created congressional seats in the house of representatives that are all democratic, all republican. there are relatively few swing seats. we seen a bunch of change in the past couple election, but that's very much the exception rather than the rule. members of the house of representatives fear primaries more than they fear general elections by and large unless they gravitate towards the margins of their parties. that doesn't explain the senate because you can't redistrict the senate, but it has had enormous impact at the state and state legislature level in the more polarized politics we have. i also think the news media plays a role in this. they used to be that there was a kind of shared set of assumptions and news that everybody watched walter cronkite were hotly in brinkley and they sort of made up
